Some explorations are Just More Fun with a dog

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

In San Francisco, you see dogs everywhere. Taking a dog to the park is an easy way to meet neighbors, to belong to a group. Store owners have water bowls out for pets; many have doggie treats behind the counter to hand out. This is a city that loves its dogs.

But not everyone is a pet owner or wishes to be, so what do you do? I borrow Tanner, our granddaughter's dog for fast-paced walks in and around The City.

Yesterday as daylight ended, we walked down to the Municipal Pier, from which Alcatraz seemed so close one could almost touch it (we can't) and the views back to Aquatic Park, Ghiradelli Square and Russian Hill were tantalizing.

Sometimes, it's Just More Fun with a dog!

Hi Lottie.  I like the idea of borrowing a dog for a walk.  That's the way I would do it.

I get it Lottie... I've said this more than once in my life and then found I couldn't stand living in a house with a pet or two.

If I borrowed a random dog for a walk, I'd probably get yanked down the street, tangle up the leash, tumble down a hill and make a general mess of things.

Aloha Lottie, what a sweet pic, I bet Tanner was itching to go for a swim or chase the birds.

It's really fun walking with Tanner - he's such a happy dog, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents - you paint a great picture with your words!

I held onto Tanner's leash pretty tightly, Kimo Stowell - he's a Golden Retriever, so definitely would go for a swim if I let him. He doesn't seem interested in birds--don't know why.

I suppose one could also become a dog walker and earn some extra cash when time permits.

We have lots of dogs here as well, and many Carlsbad business owners put dog water dishes out.

That's a great photo of the city!

How fun, and what a treat for Tanner.  I never thought of borrowing a dog.

I enjoy seeing all the dog walker here in San Francisco, Jeff Dowler CRS - the dogs always look so happy!

I'm enjoying my life sans pets, Roger D. Mucci - but borrowing Tanner makes some walks that much more fun.

I understand.  I'm the same way, but I love going on dog walks with my brother when I am visiting him in Florida.

I agree, but I just don't get to Florida often enough to visit them.

What a great post and photo too! I completely understand!

Tomorrow I pet sit for friends while they go out of town. I literally stay at their house to mind the pets and I don't mind at all. I'm also pet sitting for 3 kitties. Those folks are on their cruise. Even though I don't own pets anymore I still enjoy receiving the unconditional love from borrowed pets.

It's a great week, Roy Kelley - wrote two offers yesterday; one didn't fly (it's tough with multiples on everything and not enough inventory) but one likely will. I got out for a bit today for another Adventure with Tanner.

Hi Patricia Feager  - it's nice to have a pet to play with when time allows, without having full responsibility. I'm getting lazy, I guess. Tanner and I enjoyed another short walk today--taking time to smell the roses along the way. Enjoy your week.

Hi Lottie Kendall 

I love to take my two dogs for walks and I have a leash that keeps them from getting tangled up.
